Here comes the new Sharp Aquos Android Flagship
The Japanese from Sharp just released their latest Android running smartphone, the Sharp Aquos. What’s extraordinary about this droid is its unprecedented screen to body ratio, putting its rivals from Samsung and Apple to shame.
The device codenamed Xx 202Sh is pretty impressive, to say the least! Even if the 5.2 inches wide display is as big as it gets, the smartphone’s chassis measures only 132 mm in length and is 70 mm wide. When compared to, let’s say, Samsung’s Galaxy S5 flagship, the Sony Xperia Z2 or HTC’s baby, the ONE (and only) M8, well, the latest in the Aquos line is significantly smaller. Yet, despite its size, the screen is as big as it gets, making it a pleasure to play with. What Sharp actually did was to offer high-end real estate screen on a small body, and that’s excellent in my book.
IP57 Rating For the Aquos
Wait, there’s more. The Sharp Aquos comes with IP57 rating, making it water/dust proof and features an impressive hardware platform too! Sharp’s latest flagship droid runs on a Snapdragon 800 system on chip, has 32 GB of internal storage (expendable via micro SD), 2 GB of RAM and a respectable 2600 mAh battery.
In case you did not know, Sharp is one of the heavy names in the LCD industry, hence the panel in the Aquos is home-made, a IGZO variety with excellent performance and image quality. The smartphone comes with 2 cameras, a main 16 MP shooter and a secondary 12 MP for selfies and video calling. The device will be initially available in Japan only, but then again, who knows?
